That headline is not hyberbole. As reported by the AP:
Law officers in western Kansas are investigating the bizarre case of a woman they say sat on her boyfriend’s toilet for two years.
TWO YEARS! What would you think happens to your body under those circumstances?
The sheriff said the woman’s muscles had atrophied and that medical personnel had to remove her from the toilet because she was bound to it by “natural means.”
So, the obvious question: What kind of boyfriend would let his girlfriend sit on a toilet for 2 years without getting her help? Answer: A dude who said that, hey, she stayed in the bathroom of her own free will. Legally, what’s going to happen to the “worst boyfriend over a two-year period” ever?
Sheriff Whipple said his office may charge the boyfriend with mistreatment of a dependent adult.
Sitting on his toilet for 2 years? I’d say that definitely made her “dependent” on him.
